When I first heard about the concept
I first heard about this concept from Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich. Chapter 10: The Power of the Master Mind, the Ninth Step towards riches. Where he was discussing how he had surrounded himself by great minds like Ford. His explanations about how it helped him realise tremendous growth and success, was spiritual and surreal to me.
In that book, Napoleon Hill defined Master Mind, as the coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.
Unforeseen Power of the Mastermind
…is that “”No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.”
And this is true in basically many things. For instance, when atoms come together, they form molecule, a third distinct entity greater than the sum of the two. Even the Holy bible, acknowledges this as a spiritual principle, when it stated that one shall chase a thousand, and two shall chase ten thousand. It is the power of synergy that gives a mastermind group its potency.
Aside from just stating reasons why a mastermind group will benefit you, I also went forward to explain some cultural bias towards sharing your goals, and sometimes deepest fears, with people. In an attempt to do this, I also explained the things a mastermind will demand from you and how you can overcome the challenges you may face joining one.
You should listen to this one!
